Peridot is the birthstone for August and is used to mark 16th wedding anniversaries. Scorpios  also use peridot as their symbolic zodiac gemstone. The Hawaiian people treasured peridot, believing the gem to be the tears of Pele, the goddess of volcanoes and fire known also as 'She-who-shapes-the sacred-land.' Ancient Egyptians named peridot the 'gem of the sun' due to the brilliance it showcased in the desert sun.
